  • E-modules in clinical Paediatrics By Dr Ian Sinha and Sanjay Patel
  • Acknowledgements• Dr Mark Dalzell and Dr Melissa Gladstone• University of Liverpool – Debbie Prescott and R&D subgroup for funding• Tutors at Alder Hey• Children and parents• Alder Hey nursery• Department of Medical Illustration
  • Why did we do this?• Theory needs to be learned, and then the skills must be practiced – time spent examining children is irreplaceable• Observation is a powerful tool• Examination of children different to adults – Some students struggle to make the transition• Development very difficult to teach using textbook
  • Aim• Develop e-modules which show students how examinations should be done• Develop an innovative format for teaching child development : “longitudinal”
  • Recruitment and Consent• Children recruited from nursery and wards.• Before project – Ethics committee approval – Parental consent• Following the project – Each parent received a copy of their child’s examination and parents/participants were given a payment – Patient identifiable information kept confidential
  • Method: Filming• What did we film – Development videos – Examinations – Lectures• Filming – Completed over 2 days + other sessions by the medical photography department at Alder Hey – Examinations and lectures demonstrated by staff at Alder Hey – Melissa Gladstone completed the development examinations. – All performed within Alder Hey hospital grounds
  • Method: Editing• Completed by myself with the help of Ian Sinha and Melissa Gladstone.• How were the videos made? – Recordings were split into clips showing individual developmental milestones – Individual clips were complied to demonstrate progression• Required lots of time and video editing software
  • Example MCQ• Which of the following are causes of speech delay in children? (tick all that apply)? – Deafness – Autism – Duchenne muscular dystrophy – Cerebral palsy – Tongue-tie
  • What have we learned?• Innovation is possible with enthusiastic staff• E-modules take time to develop• Need somebody with dedicated time• Organisationis key• Students seem to like this format – (pending formal evaluation)
